This is a small school with three teachers, and an average of ten students per class. Our teacher will teach at all levels from beginners to proficiency, with students aged 8 – 15. Hours of work are Monday to Friday between 3 and 9pm, with each lesson lasting one hour. You will teach a total of 23 contact hours per week.
Whilst no lesson planning is necessary, model essays, some notes, interesting video clips and the occasional poem or short passage needs to be written or found before the school day commences. There is also some marking to be done on a daily basis.
The day is intensive and passes quickly as lessons are back-to-back. The children are generally polite, bright and eager to learn which makes being in the classroom a joy. The school Director gives support when needed and has a well-rehearsed system in place.
The salary is 800 euro per month net, plus health insurance, pension contributions and free accommodation.
